Elvis Aaron Presley (January 8, 1935 – August 16, 1977; middle name sometimes written Aron) was an American singer, actor and musician. A cultural icon, he is commonly known simply as "Elvis", and is also sometimes referred to as "The King of Rock 'n' Roll" or "The King".
In 1954, Presley began his career as one of the first performers of rockabilly, an uptempo fusion of country and rhythm and blues with a strong back beat. His novel versions of existing songs, mixing "black" and "white" sounds, made him popular—and controversial—as did his uninhibited stage and television performances.

As I was driving through Memphis over the weekend, I couldn’t resist stopping at Graceland. I’ve been through Elvis Presley’s house quite a few times, but on this visit, I finally splurged on the platinum ticket. So, in addition to lingering in the Jungle Room and paying your respects at the grave, you can also see the car museum, his airplanes, his military memorabilia and — my personal favorite — an exhibit called “Sincerely, Elvis,” which is essentially a parade of his outrageous jumpsuits. As I was ...

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa — At a bicycle shop here in northeast Iowa, Hillary Clinton was taking questions from the audience — a handful of local officials who'd come to watch her roundtable discussion with small business owners — when a voice rang out from the other side of the room.

"We don't create good jobs for Americans by entering into unbalanced trade deals that forego Congressional scrutiny and looking the other way as the law is ignored so we can import low wage labor, undercut American workers, and drive wages lower than the Dead Sea," he said.
Though the exact terms of the deal, called the Trans-Pacific Partnership, are still being negotiated, it is expected to reduce tariffs on a variety of goods and includes countries from Mexico to Japan.
Huckabee writes on his campaign website that he supports "free, fair trade" but says he is sick of "America's workers gett
